教练Efrain:“感谢棒球给我的一切”| D-BAT棒球学院教练访谈发布时间:12.21.2018


本期D-BAT明星教练我们将采访到我们的外教Efrain。今年9月,25岁的美国小伙子远赴重洋,来到我们美丽的春城昆明,教授棒球。刚来昆明,遇到的问题,除了语言沟通障碍,还有就是食物,每个人都有一个家乡胃,出门在外,最想念的就是家乡的食物,日常生活中,Efrain最喜欢的食物就是宫保鸡丁和鱼香肉丝。

  除了平时上课时间,日常生活中,Efrain在寻找着自己的生活节奏,在课余时间保持健身习惯,骑着小蓝车去打篮球 。然而,Efrain却是一个不折不扣的游戏宅男,精灵宝可梦“pokemon”是他最爱的游戏,皮卡丘则是他最喜欢的游戏宠物。

  Efrain在本次访谈,滔滔不绝,和我们聊了很多,给我们分享了自己的故事。

    My baseball journey began with my grandpa. He played for most of his life and coached me when he finished playing.

(我的棒球旅程始于我的祖父,他几乎一辈子都在打球,而当他退役的时候,他就开始教授我打棒球。)

My dad inherited his love for baseball from his father and passed it on to me.

(我的爸爸继承了祖父对于棒球的热爱,且把他传给了我。)

 I started plying when I was 3 years old in a team that was made up of 3-5 year olds. I happen to still be friends with some of those kids.

(我从三岁开始打球,并加入了一个3-5岁的棒球队。时至今日,其中的一些球员仍是我的好朋友。)

Over the years, I trained with my father and my grandfather as well as other very influential coaches.

(这些年来,父亲和祖父对我的影响就如同教练一样。)

Along the way I learned, not only physical skills and abilities, but also life lessons.In addition, I made some of the best friends of my life thanks to baseball.

(这一路来,我学到的不仅仅是棒球技能,更是人生课堂。除此之外,棒球还让我结交了这辈子最好的朋友。)

 A personal story of mine, I stopped playing baseball when I was about 12 years old.

(告诉你们一则小故事,我曾在12岁时从棒球转到了足球。)

I switched over to soccer. I joined a really good team and I was able to perform as well as the other kids.

(我加入了一个非常好的足球队且表现得与其他专业球员不相上下。)

After about a year, I felt empty inside. I realized that I missed baseball and that I had made a mistake.

但是在一年之后,我内心感到空洞,我后悔了。)

 After I returned to baseball, I performed better than ever and went on to receive a scolarship to play in college.

现在,我是如此的想念棒球,随后,我就回到了棒球,并打出了最好的表现,同时收获到了奖学金。

Baseball gave me the life I have now and I would never trade it.

棒球给了我现在拥有的生活,我会永远珍惜它。

Q:你为什么选择打棒球?

我没有选择棒球,是我父亲和祖父,当我逐渐长大,开始认识并热爱这项运动,我认识到我的父亲和祖父为我做了最棒的选择,我十分感激,可以说是棒球选择了我。

I did not choose to play baseball. Me dad chose for me. As I grew older and began to understand and love the game more, I realized that my dad made the best decision and I am very thankful. I guess you can say baseball chose me.

Q:棒球教会了你什么?

棒球带给我的不仅仅是身体上的锻炼,同时也是一堂人生课程。作为一个棒球运动员,大部分运动对于我们来说比较容易上手,会打棒球,就会其他运动。而其他领域的优秀的运动员在棒球运动上就会比较挣扎。

Baseball taught me, not only physical abilities, but also life lessons. As a baseball player, most sports come easy to us. If you know how to play baseball, you can play any other sport. Athletes that are excellent at other sports struggle when they try to play baseball.

Q:你觉得D-BAT的优势是什么?

我觉得D-BAT的优势是拥有最棒的设施和资源,D-BAT的声誉可以帮助任何人将他们的棒球生涯提升到一个新的水平。

The advantages of DBat are the state of the art facilities and resources that we have. DBats reputation can help anyone advance their baseball career to the next level.

Q:你觉得孩子能从棒球中学到什么?

我认为那些热爱棒球的孩子做出了一个伟大的决定。孩子必须为了棒球付出很多东西,如果他们继续追求棒球并努力,他们将会收获很多好处。

I think that the kids that love baseball made a great decision. There is so much that baseball has to offer and if they continue to pursue baseball and work hard, they will reap many benefits.

Q:你觉得棒球这项运动的优势是什么?

我认为棒球比其他运动更好,因为它教你玩其他运动的技巧。它还教授批判性思维。棒球具有锻炼人体能和脑力的能力。大多数体育运动只是为了让你对特定比赛的体能方面有所准备。棒球教授的技能可以很容易地转移到其他运动和生活。

I think baseball is better than other sports because it teaches skills that allow you to play other sports. It also teaches critical thinking. Baseball has the ability to prepare a person physically as well as mentally. Most sports only prepare you for the physical aspect of that specific game. Baseball teaches skills that can transfer easily to other sports as well as life.

Q:你最喜欢的棒球队和球员是谁呢?

我最喜欢的球队是Colorado Rockies最喜欢的球员是Chase Utley
